How to Wrap With Cloth

Dec 20, 2012

by AngelaDotDalton

Create beautiful-looking gifts without the waste (and the sticky tape!) by taking a cue from the Japanese art of furoshiki. Swap paper for fabric, and get craftastic with material off-cuts, old scarves, vintage hankies, pretty kitchen towels or even old shirts or tees snipped up. In this how-to animation, fabric artist Penelope Kokinelis of Uptightso shows you how to wrap with style using cloth. Tie one on!

For step-by-step directions, be sure to check out this PDF from the City of Sydney’s Green Villages initiative.
